Throughout this week, many media have made mention of the recent changes we have made on Uptodown. In an attempt to improve the experience on mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, we have made substantial changes to the website, such that now our site has become a practical and convenient service for downloading apps on Android and iOS devices.
Currently, Uptodown has more than 21,000 programs across all platforms, of which 2,500 are for Android and iOS devices. There is a considerable level of download volume in regards to other traditional operating systems, such as Windows. It is because of this that we have improved how our website looks on small-screened devices using a responsive resize design based in HTML + CSS. Or, in other words, you don’t have to install apps or add-ons of any kind, rather simply go to www.uptodown.com and download the program you want.
Just has Luis Hernandez explains on his personal blog, you can now view the website perfectly on screens that are only 320px wide, providing a browsing experience with the same features as that of the desktop. The program categories, the top downloads list, and commentary feature are still accessible even from your smartphone.
After all this, it is evident that we seek after usability above all else, opting for a website that adapts to all different kinds of devices in place of unnecessary applications. As always, we look forward to your comments and suggestions so we can keep on improving.
